Literature Lunch 2010
The European Economic and Social Committee cordially invites you to the SUMMER at the EESC

The European Thematic Year 2010, draws attention to two very serious problems of contemporary society: poverty and social exclusion. Today, 16% of EU citizens are living below the poverty line; as a consequence, this often means having to cope with limited lifestyle choices that may lead to social exclusion.
In coherence with the guiding principle of this European Year the literature lunches intend to give voice to authors that express through their individual view the concerns of people who have to live with poverty and social exclusion, and to inspire every European citizen to engage with these issues. This year the literary readings also challenge stereotypes as well as different perceptions of poverty and social exclusion.
